I love snow. I grew up with it, and I live in a snowy area by choice. I could never live in a place without four distinct seasons.

However, I love to visit those places in late February, March and early April. Then I need to get out of the heat.

Snow and seasons are highly overrated in my opinion. I would be happier than a clam if I lived in a place where it never ever snowed

There has never been a year without snow during all the time I have lived in Maryland. I enjoy snow, as it looks magical. However, I dislike shoveling snow. I have my yardworker do that.

Maryland has a nice balance of four seasons. The beach on the East is great during the summer.

I have not experienced a snowfall since yesterday. We have the shortest and most mild winter in all of Alberta, not that this is saying much.

I asked my Filipina wife, she said she saw snow once, in Kuwait, and it was brown. I suspect it was largely sleet, which had accumulated a lot of windblown desert dust on the way down.

I bet that lots of people that are living in southern parts of the US, and never travelled in their life, newer had an opportunity to experience real snowfall. And I know people who never left their state or even a county...

Amigo, you can't believe how lucky you are, even you're sweating the hell off you during 8 months, Texas in general is still blessed with Polar winds right from the Artic.


I lived my whole life at 23ºS and never had a hint of what is like to have at least one day of freezing temperature. Had to travel all the way to Switzerland to have a mere glimpse of that (there was some snow at some few roofs in Zurich, last March)

Just this weekend my father was telling me how much he missed shovelling snow. He is in his 70s and his doctor has told him he can't do that anymore, for health reasons.

A person would have to live in the tropics and never leave.

My mother lives in San Diego County and it snows there. It snows in Florida. It snows in Hawaii. Less frequently than it snows in Minnasota, but it occassionally snows in those places.

I live where we get lots of snow and that first snowfall of the year is always a thrill.
